Default Rotation photos

Hi,

I have a new problem with DSA2 about rotation photos.

When I try to rotate my photos, the dimensions are not the same, the square is modified as streched.

Could you help me please?

Thank you for answer.

Micheline

Hi Micheline,

Are you rotating the photos with the rotation paddle or via the control on the Transform tab?

I rotate my photos in DSA2 by going into ' Arrange' then 'Rotate'. That turns the photo without altering the size at all.

You can rotate via the rotation handle or you can drag the corner the image (but make sure the cursor changes to indicate a rotation, else you will skew it). When you are dragging, you can hold down CTRL to make the rotation snap to 15° increments.

Hi Mark,

Yes that is the problem I skew the image and after I have to strech the corners to make a perfect square.

I will follow your instructions and I give you new.

Strangely, I did'nt have this problem before.

Thank you.

Drag the corner, Mark? Methinks you must have had your DrawPlus hat on when you wrote that! I'm also pretty sure you meant to write "dragging just outside the corner", since dragging on a corner will resize the object. Dragging outside a corner doesn't work for most objects — sorry, "items" — in DSA/CA; however, it does work for punches (which is just as well, since they don't have rotation paddles).

Hi Micheline,

I've attached a screenshot in which the first image shows what the cursor looks like when you hover near the handle of the rotation paddle. The second image shows what the cursor looks like when you hover near the adjustment handle halfway along the top edge.

If you accidentally rotate an item, you can double-click on the rotation handle to put it back the way it was. The same trick works for skew: hover near the adjustment handle to get a 'skew' cursor, and then double-click.

Hi Alfred, I understand what you mean but my problem is not the difficulty to rotate.

What I want is that my photo stay the same dimension even if I rotate it.

Same dimensions or same aspect ratio?

Hi Mjh,
I want the same dimension and a perfect square.

Thank you for the links. It seems very interesting.
